That is within a normal healthy range. For your interest - healthy blood pressure range is: systole: 90-120 diastole: 60-80 Hypotension (low blood pressure) can cause inadequate perfusion of brain tissue (that is the brain does not receive enough oxygen), which can manifest as fainting, dizziness and confusion. If you experience any of those signs you should go and see your doctor.

They seem to be really on me about it. And I have fainting episodes. I m getting worried. What can happen if my blood pressure is this low? My heart rate is also low, and I eat only once a day. I also suffer from insomnia, so I do not sleep. What can this lead to? I ve been to doctors. And I have to go to the hospital every week. They tell me I should already be dead, but I don t know how serious it is. I guess it is. Is there anything I can do to raise it? I m starting to become rather worried. I haven t felt good in months. Haha, I ve been admitted into the hospital for it. And it s possibly a bit above 70. It was in the seventies though. I m on so much medication it s not funny. But i m looking for anything else I can do help.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
